Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire, Biden makes Another Lie Up about His House Burning Down – It Never Happened
While visiting Colorado residents who lost everything in rare winter wildfires that ripped through neighborhoods while ravaging over a thousand homes and businesses, Joe Biden decided to make the victims feel a little better by telling a lie about a house fire that never happened to him and Jill.
Jill and I have not gone through what you’ve gone through, but we have had a lightning strike our home and almost lost our home.
Last week, the commander-in-chief raised the 2004 blaze during remarks at a rusty New Hampshire bridge promoting his just-enacted infrastructure plan.
“What happens if the bridge collapses and there’s a fire on the other side?” said Biden, raising the specter of emergency response delays. “It’s going to takes 10 miles longer to get to the fire. People can die. I mean, this is real. This is real stuff.”
Now he has come back and even made the story more of a lie:
And uh—uh—we only lost about uh—25% of it —and were able to rebuild.
But, uh—you know, uh—the hard part is the memorabilia you’ve lost—the special things that you’ve had put away that you’ve lost.
So there was no lightning strike; there was a small kitchen fire that the firefighters put out in less than ten minutes.
I am beginning to think that Biden thinks fish stories should apply to all our stories in life. The sad thing is, I write fiction and am getting a book published, but I have never felt this fiction is factual; it seems Biden does.
The discrepancy was picked up by Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler, who tweeted out the 2004 AP report after Biden spoke Tuesday.
The president has repeatedly told a made-up story to illustrate his love of train travel on Amtrak and his closeness with a former conductor named Angelo Negri. Details of Biden’s tale vary in the telling, but the story is always set during his time as vice president — by which point Negri was long retired.
The White House also recently admitted that the president did not visit the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh after the murder of 11 congregants — despite claiming otherwise.
I remember when I was a child and used to lie, as many children do, my father and mother used to tell me, “You lie so much, no one knows if they can believe anything you say!”
Mr. President, sadly, it looks like your parents never taught you this lesson, or if they did, it went in one ear and came out the other.
